Thieves In The Temple?

    According to a joint statement from DraftKings and FanDuel: “Nothing is more important” than the “integrity of the games we offer.”
    Right, right.

Son Rises In West

Did we mention Kevin McHale blew off half the media scrum? Didn’t think so. But sometimes karma’s a bitch and it’s a bitch with drama.
We had a feeling something might be brewing before the game, especially with Sam Cassell counseling Austin Rivers. And if you’re buying that line of bullshit, could we interest you in more hyperbole?

Series Over?

Somewhere Bill Standford is shouting “I told you guys, you’ve got to beat the officials too!”
A few sportswriters, we of course not among them (right, right), would love to see this thing end Thursday in San Antonio, unless it’s a nooner and Bloody Marys on Saturday at Staples, to watch some big fight that night.
But back to the matter at hand, in our best Snoop impersonation. As entertaining as Doc Rivers is, he’s still 1 of the biggest whiners in the NBA. And it’s why his Clippers led the NBA in T’s during the regular season. Do you see a pattern here? Do they get hosed by the officials sometimes against the Spurs? Yes. But who doesn’t?
Our play-by-play.

NBA Playoffs: Shot Of Crown With Dat

We keep going back and forth on our pick to win the NBA title. Guess that means we’re as shaky as a $3 bill. Still, unlike last year, when we were within a Gregg Popovich brain cramp from cashing our little meager ticket in Vegas, we believe we’ve got a winner this time.
Three teams could win it all in our book, but none of them are named Thunder, Clippers, Rockets or Lakers. Oops, sorry Laker fans. What were we thinking?
Anyway, without further adieu.
Eastern Conference
Pacers over Hawks in 6; Bulls over Wizards in 7; Nets over Raptors in 7; and Heat over Bobcats in 5.
Pacers over Bulls in 6 and Heat over Nets in 6.
Heat over Pacers in 7.
Western Conference
Thunder over Grizzlies in 7; Clippers over Warriors in 6; Rockets over Blazers in 6; and Spurs over Mavs in 5.
Clippers over Thunder in 7 and Spurs over Rockets in 6.
Spurs over Clippers in 6.
NBA Finals
Spurs over Heat in 6.

Taking The 5th

Lamar Odom Flips Out On Photographers In Los Angeles

    lamar2

You reading this Lamar? Want your old job? Didn’t think so.
The Sixers came to L.A. looking for some thrills. As luck would have it (every squirrel gets a nut) Philly found its thrills beating the Lakers for only their 2nd road win this season. Philly caught Cleveland to tie for the worst road mark at 2-13. How about that? The banged-up Lakers were in a giving mood, dropping their 5th straight.
Other lowlights: Mike D’Antoni got a little testy with a reporter before the game after the scribe asked why Laker reserve point guard Kendall Marshall wasn’t playing. “He’s not as good as ‘X,’” D’Antoni said, referring to Xavier Henry. “He’s got to be better than the point guard we have out there. And ‘X’ right now is doing a pretty good job. The other thing going against him is I don’t know him. I’ve maybe seen him play two minutes. I don’t think we’re at the point to experiment. He’s trying to find his way in the league. Hasn’t established that yet.”
Lo and behold Marshall spelled Henry when the latter strained his knee, then played 16 minutes and scored 8 points and handed out 3 assists. The rest of the story…

Buss A Nut

    Doesn’t this photo say think twice before you sign this guy? Didn’t think so.
    Proof the world (or Jimmy Buss) has gone mad: The Lakers are considering waiving bye-bye to World Peace but signing Chris Kaman. Can’t make this shit up. Who would have guessed? Did someone mention Lamar Odom is on the horizon?

Best In L.A.

    The Clip Joint is smoking out of the gate. With a strong lineup, and unlike the Lakers, a productive bench, they are off to a 6-2 start and lead the Pacific Division. Led by the pickup of the year, Jamal Crawford, who finished with 22 points on 7 of 11 shooting to beat the Heat Wednesday night, they have instant offense and a significant up-tempo attack.
    LeBron went for 30 against the Clippers, but D-Wade, who is hurting again, managed just 6 points on 2 of 10 attempts and ate some leather when Eric Bledsoe rejected a layup.
    Five Clippers scored in double figures, including Blake Griffin, who had 20, 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 blocks.
    It’s early, but we like what we see from 2nd city.
